2. Gadgets

One of the most common requests we come across for under $20 is definitely the humble flashlight. For wheelchairs and scooters, having a stationary flashlight is a great alternative for weak headlights. A good light on your chair will help you feel more secure and safe when going out after dark. A range of good LED lights exists.

The Life Mounts LED Wheelchair / Walker light features a powerful 300 lumen flashlight that operates on one AA battery, has 3 modes: high, low, and safety strobe and can bee seen for over 1,000 feet. The mount is made of durable silicone rubber, not brittle plastic like comparable products. It has a multi-position swivel and the secure Velcro straps adapt to any mounting location.

USB charger are another gadget that we hear people ask for all the time. Even in this modern world, many scooters and chairs do not come with a USB port to charge your phone. There are¬†several USB charger options¬†available that pull power from your chair or scooter’s battery and convert it to a USB outlet, where you can plug in your phone’s charging cable.

A final gadget that wouldn’t go amiss for any chair or scooter user is a¬†cup holder. They come in many varieties. We’re a big fan of the HandiCup, as it is easy to install and remove without tools, and will fit on any chair.

3. Light-up Wheels

A lot of cool gadgets for bicycles work on wheelchairs too! One that we’re excited about is¬†wheel lights. These are lights that go on the spokes of the wheel, and create images as the wheel rotates. Some really cool effects, and they’re really not too expensive. They make for great gifts!

This scooter wheel is a replacement for many casters used on rollators and wheelchairs.

4. Pillows and Pads

There are a range of cushions and pads available. Most cushions need to be professionally fitted to ensure the user is well balanced and supported, with pressure points taken into account as to not create pressure sores. There are some pads and cushions that are cute and come in useful for those little extra comfort touches.

Take for example microwavable heat packs (or microwaveable heating pad). These are great for anyone who has to stay seated for extended periods. They’re great for relaxing strained body parts, and relaxing your muscles after a hard day of pushing a wheelchair around. It’s especially great for the shoulders of people who self propel their wheelchair.

5. Throws and Capes

In a similar vain,¬†heated blankets¬†are great! Especially for this winter weather coming up. Take a look at some¬†USB powered blankets, and combine them with a USB outlet for wheelchair and scooters, and you’ve got a system to keep wheelchair users warm the whole day!

Just a regular¬†throw blanket¬†will work also, and most chair users who go out during the freezing winter temperatures will be familiar with the concept of taking a blanket when going out. Throw blankets come in many shapes and sizes, so it’s a great choice for an expressive present.

There are also some great¬†poncho’s¬†available, specifically for seated wheelchair users. These can keep the wearer warm, but more importantly, they’re also weather proof against rain and snow.
